The results showed that pomegranate juice was associated with a significant decrease in glucose levels. While the exact mechanisms for this are still unclear. Researchers suggest it may lie in the juice’s antioxidant ability. Which helps thwart oxidative stress. It is a defect of unstable atoms that leads to cell and tissue damage. And oxidative stress plays a pivotal role in the development of diabetes complications. According to the British newspaper, Express.
